Linda Smith, Nov 2015

The Hallowell Free Press was a weekly newspaper published in Hallowell or Picton, Prince Edward County, Upper Canada in the 1830's. The northwest side of Picton Bay (then called Hallowell) and the southeast side (then called Picton) were incorporated into the town of Picton in March 1837. Issues of the newspaper have survived and are available on microfilm N60, reels 1 and 2 at the Archives of Ontario.

Linda writes that, "pages 1 and 2 are mainly international and national news but that doesn’t always hold true. Page 3 is usually national and local news (older the paper, more info from Parliament) as well as Letters to the Editor and the marriage/deaths.  Page 4 is usually local advertising (more so as time goes on)."

A history of the newspaper has not been found and any assistance from readers is most welcome. The Picton Gazette began as a weekly in 1836 so perhaps the Hallowell Press morphed into the Gazette. For those interested, the Archives does provide this aid concerning old newspapers on film. See page A4.8 for the Hallowell Free Press listing.

The events are listed for each date of issue followed by the page number.

Death (Story)

Singular Circumstance – On Saturday night last, a small girl, the daughter of William McDonald, between six and seven years of age, got up in her sleep and walked two miles from home, returned and went to bed without waking and although the cold was intense, and the child had no other than her sleeping clothes on, yet she escaped no greater injury than having her toes somewhat frozen.  In the morning when she awoke, she related the transaction as a dream, stating that she went in pursuit of her brother whom she thought was at the schoolhouse.  And on examining the road, her tracts (sp) were plain to be seen through the whole distance. 

1831-02-15 02

Death (Story)

Fire.  On Saturday evening last, a house of a Mr. Scott, of Sophiasburgh, was consumed by fire.  The fire took place in the absence of Mrs. Scott, who went to a neighbor for a pail of water.  She had been absent for about half an hour when on her return, she found the house enveloped by flames.  A child 2 years old was left in a cradle, which in all probability left it to escape the smoke and flame as its bones were found under where the bed stood.  This is among the many melancholy instances which have been related in newspapers.  The public has had these admonitions time after time, “to be cautious of fire and do not leave children alone in the house.”  The house and furniture were entirely consumed.  It is hoped the hand of Charity will be extended in this inclement season, to the unfortunate sufferers.

Death (Story)

Dissipation and Death.  On Saturday morning last, a person was found near the distillery of Mr. Allen Munro, at the lower end of this village, lying on his back, and perfectly stupid.  He was a native of Ireland, by the name of Barnard Cosgrove, and had been in the place but a few weeks.  He was taken from the situation in which he was found, and carried to his house, where he remained until sometime in the afternoon, so he so far recovered as to be able to speak, and stated that some man (his name not known) had given him the whiskey he had wanted the night previous.  He, however, soon expired.  An Inquest was held over the body on Sunday, and examining what witnesses could be obtained, the Jury returned a verdict that the deceased came to his death by drinking ardent spirits on the night of the 19th ult.  He has left a wife and three children to mourn his untimely death.  We sincerely hope that this example will prove a warning to all those who are in the habit of making free too free use of intoxicating liquors.

Coroner’s Inquest

A Coroner’s Inquest was held at the East Lake in the Township of Hallowell at Isaac Scott’s place on the 15th inst. on the body of John McDonald.  Verdict of the Jury, that the said John McDonald came to his death by a fit caused by Intoxication.  It seemed like the deceased had been in the habit of drinking spirituous liquors for a length of time previous to his untimely end, and on the day of his death he went to the field in order to get a horse; and while engaged in getting the horse over a fence, he attempted to get away, the deceased held fast to his main (sp) and was swung round – being in an intoxicated state he fell to the ground and died immediately.  Thus we have another incident of the baneful effect of taking Spirituous Liquors, and which it is hoped will prove a salutary warning to all who may be addicted to so evil a practice.

From the Christian Guardian of Feb. 1.  Died this morning at half past five o-clock, Hannah, wife of the Rev. E. Ryerson, aged 28 years.  She has left, to sustain her loss, a husband and two children – a son and daughter – the former aged two years and a half, the latter two weeks and three days.  In her life were most conspicuous the graces of patience, meekness and love; during the whole of her last illness was remarkably illustrated what has been called “the majesty of faith,” or what the Apostle terms, “the riches of the full assurance of faith,” and “the riches of the full assurance of understanding.”  Among the many similar expressions which she emphatically uttered during her illness, especially the last twenty-four hours of it were, “it is a truth that the religion of Jesus Christ is no cunningly devised fable.  Jesus is all my portion – He is all to me than all the world besides.”  “Not a cloud doth arise to darken my skies or hide for a moment the Lord from my eyes.”  “I long to be with Jesus, I only wait His bidding.”  “I shall soon meet sister Metcalf.”  “O, death, where’s thy sting?  O, grave, where’s thy victory?”  Some of her last words, about 15 minutes before her release were, “Come, Lord Jesus.”

Death-Letter to Editor

An Awful Providence.  Mr. Editor.  Sir, - Viewing in your Editorial remarks in the last number of the Free Press, a short notice of a distressing scene which occurred tin this town on Sunday last, relative to the death of Mr. Philip Clapp, and believing a more particular description of this awful exhibition of Omnipotent  power would be satisfactory in some of your readers and might convey through the medium of the press, intelligence of the awful catastrophe to some distant friends, I send you for insertion a detail of the circumstances as far as I have been able to collect them.  The deceased it appears after returning from preaching on Sunday afternoon, went into the field to drive up his cows; on his return a sudden thunder shower arose, and before he could reach his dwelling to elude the rain that now descended in torrents, it would appear he took shelter under the wide spreading boughs of an elm.  He had not remitted long under this fabled asylum before a flash of lightning came in contact with the top of the tree, said descending the same with the quickness of thought, hurried the victim of its vengeance into the presence of  the “Judge of the quick and the dead.”  And here let me observe, that it would be injustice of language to attempt to give a literal description of the scene be a non-beholder; suffice it to say, that not one thread of his clothing remained on his body when first discovered, except the collar of his shirt and his neck handkerchief.  From appearance the electric fluid passed down the body, tearing and scattering to the distance of several rods the entire clothing had had on, passing out at the bottom of the foot, without injuring the body to outward appearance, except the second toe, which was cut off.  A Coroner’s Inquest was held on Monday before S. Washburn, Esq., - Verdict of the Jury – “that the deceased came to his death by a stroke of lightning.”  On Tuesday his remains were carried to “that borne from whence no traveler returns” said a throng of weeping friends and relations.  A very solemn feeling and appropriate address was delivered by the Rev. R. Heyland, founded on Numbers 23d Chapt., 10th verse, “Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his.”  Yours respectfully, J. Rose Marysburgh, Sept 19., 1932

We regret to state that as three brothers of the name of McCumber were sailing up the Bay of Quinte on Saturday last in a small wherry, one of them, named Franklin, in putting down the rifle in which had just missed fired in his hands, inadvertently struck the cock against the edge of the deck on which he had been standing:  the ball entering the lower part of his abdomen escaped by the right side of neck.  It is needless to state that death was the immediate consequence.  The accident was witnessed on board the Britannia Steam Boat when the Commander instantly ordered her about and rendered every assistance which humanity could dictate to the unhappy surviving brothers.  The young man whose death we have just recorded was an emigrant from the State of New York, he was by trade a wagon maker and was possessed of active and industrious habits.
